carol with snowy red and a machine or two

Absolutely wanted to play Carol‘s “Breakdown” for ya – a track I’d already mentioned in my Snowy Red post, as he’s backing her on this one. The track is also on the very excellent A Man & A Machine IIIv/a 2cd. The tracks by the Cabs, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and Drinking Electricity are presented here in the compilers’ original sequence, just to show how well Stéphane Ritzenthaler and Philippe Pierre-Adolphe can create a musical flow, apart from having impeccable taste in eighties wave and avantgarde … Do check their “A Man & A Machine” series, I urge thee!
